OK, I have come up with a great way to jump start your diet plan for 2013.

Now the friend I have in mind for this little adventure might not be 100% onboard, but I know it would work for me. Here's my plan. Most women have a good friend who is quite the clothes horse. This is the lady with all the coolest and latest fashion pieces in her closet. Now she, too might have struggled with weight over the years. So she will have a wide variety of sizes in her closet. But her wardrobe will not be drawstring pants and sweatshirts. She will have fancy dresses, sparkly blouses and the latest shoes. If you tell me, I could raid her closet if I lose XXX amount of weight, I would so do it. I think most other women would give my plan two thumbs up.
